Database Consideration

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000 for the database.
    • MSDE is a free Microsoft database with a 2GB data limit, making it a viable option for testing the database functionality or small environments. MSDE can be upgraded to SQL Server at any time (without any data loss).
    • Resource: Microsoft's requirements for SQL are available at:
  • User account for Auditor Professional Executive Dashboard must have db_datareader, db_datawriter, and db_ddladmin roles for Auditor Professional Executive Dashboard and Auditor databases
    Note: To create a NEW database, the account must have dbcreator or sysadmin role.
  • Using a Windows account and Windows authentication mode, this account must have 'Logon as a service' privilege on the computer. On MS Windows 2000 systems, the account must also have 'Act as part of operating system' privilege.
  • Using a remote SQL engine, network access through named pipes and TCP/IP must be granted to the engine and network access to MSDTC must be enabled on that computer.
    Note: If the remote computer is protected by a firewall, the SQL engine and MSDTC must be allowed on the firewall.
